Porn

SenatorB

J.S.P.S
There's been topics about Child Pornography, Animated Child Pornography, Prostitution, and Sex, but nothing about just normal Porn, which is different than any of what's been discussed so far, so here goes.

I stand in firm support. I find it hard to see how so many people are against it as there are. It seems to me that people should have the option whether or not to look at porn, because some people are not allowed to view it because of religious or other beliefs, but some people have nothing prohibiting them from it and enjoy it greatly. Even in this forum, it is a big program to post porn (Lb warning) which carries a long (read: permanent) ban. Why is this? Why is porn considered so bad? In terms of the forum I think it would make more sense to have a requirement that anything with porn in it have a warning in the title, so underage people and people who cannot look at porn due to beliefs do not go there.

If you don't like porn, or if you don't believe in looking at porn, thats fine with me, thats your opinion. However, your opinion should not influence what I do or look at.

I'm curious to see if other people are in support of it, and if you aren't, give me your reasons why you are against it.

So I was in berkeley at a debate tournament right? And the topic is that "Resolved: The United States Federal Government Should Substantially Decrease Its Authority to Detain Without Charge or Search Without Probable Cause" And teams have to come up with policies that do what the resolution asks when they are the affirmative team, and the negative has to refute it... that's a basic explanation. but so these two girls had a plan which disallowed the searching of places for porn... and they said their was an feminist advantage to their case advocating that women need the ability to be in porn and all this junk... pretty humorous stuff... at one point during the round they made an assumption about the amount of porn I watch...

IN ANY CASE... nothin wrong with porn. And if to some people, there is... then just don't worry bout it... people need to not be like so sketchy round things like that... I suppose the majority of people who do have a problem with it just think it goes against moral principles. That's bout it. Not even necessarily the watching of it, (well that too), but that act of it. People just havin some sex is found to be... promiscuous and morally reprehensible by some, and they would view watching it as endorsing that behavior

I dont have a problem with it. As long as it doesnt turn into an addiction and its not detrimental to the person or those surrounding them (like alchohol or drug abuse).

Freedom of speech and expression i think needs to be upheld in this topic.

As far as religiously, or morally, some people can view it as degrading to women. They might go to the extent of seeing sex (which is regarded as a sacred act in most religions) displayed in such a way is almost mocking the whole act of sex.

From a personal stand point i can understand both views. I think that the right to freedom of expression is important. Would i purchase porn or support a porn company monetarily...probably not but do i care that its around? Nope its fine by me. Some porn goes to the extreme but the actors and actresses are being compensated for their services willingly not forcibly.

I think it would be a lot to encompass the filming of sex into our constitutional rights. I think it functions as something different from freedom of expression....

I remember reading a couple articles for my writing class about porn and its protection or lack thereof by the bill of rights. It dealt largely with the 'dark-side' of legal porn, that being the S&M Domination type stuff. Some writers argued that violent pornography inspires rapists, and there may have even been a case or two where a convicted rapist had acted out a particular scene. Now, I don't believe that this warrents the total banning of porn, I really think we should hold on to personally responsibility as one of our core values (although it isn't really one now). Aside from that shit, I think porn is great. In fact sometimes I just browse some pics of hot naked chicks when I get bored.

I don't think there's going to be many (if any) people here against it. The only problem is to protect porn under our laws would require categorizing it and that can be a pain in the ass. A guy watching your standard porno, guy vs. girl having plain good ol' sex, will pose less of a legal threat than say, bestiality. Porn is a vague term because of all it's facets and subcategories. Most porn I have nothing against, but some of it is just plain wrong and should merit beatings.

Yeah the only ones i can see having a problem with it would be the women, i'd have to say every guy on this forum is perfectly fine with it.

Why would most women have a problem with it? They look at porn too, most just aren't as open to admit it as guys. Men are sexually objectified as well.

Not all women do though, and even the ones who do would most likely deny it

I just said that, read the posts dude. You said women are mainly the ones who have problems with porn and I said they don't and that most of them look at it and lie about it anyways . . . then you said the same thing . . . ?
